Small Business Grant Fund and Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grant Fund Guidance

This support will take the form of two grant funding schemes, the Small Business Grant Fund and the Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grant Fund.

At Budget, the Chancellor announced that all businesses eligible for Small Business Rates Relief and Rural Rates Relief would receive a grant of £3,000 each to help with the impact of Covid-19.

On 17 March, the Chancellor confirmed that the Government would increase the value of this to £10,000 per business.

On the 17 March the Government also announced that it would provide those businesses in the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors with an additional cash grant of up to £25,000 per business. Recipients will receive one grant per eligible property:

  • For businesses in these sectors with a rateable value of under £15,000, they will receive a grant of £10,000 ·
  • For businesses in these sectors with a rateable value of between £15,000 and £51,000, they will receive a grant of £25,000

Stratford on Avon District Council is currently working on providing these grants to the relevant properties as soon as possible. The Council's website will be updated as soon as we have more information.

In the meantime please provide the Council with an up to date correspondence address for us to use if you are no longer in your business premises.
